Facts about Gunther

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Gunther is a handsome boy who just wants to please. He enjoys playing ball and having his belly rubbed. We are looking for a special owner who understands the needs and intelligence of the German Shepherd Dog. Gunther is a classic working German Shepherd who needs structure and boundaries to provide him with a sense of accomplishment. Gunther will respond best to someone who has the time and is able to consistently provide him with training and physical activity. Our boy will thrive in training since he enjoys and responds well to new challenges. He is always looking for your guidance and approval. He knows his basic commands, is house trained, neutered, micro chipped, and up to date on vaccinations.

We feel the best placement for Gunther is in an active home without small children, cats, or small dogs. Gunther is very smart and respects those who demonstrate calm, confident energy. Because Gunther is cautious when meeting new people, anyone interested will need to spend some quality time with him prior to adoption. He is truly a sweet boy who just needs to know he is safe in your care.

About Austin German Shepherd Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Austin German Shepherd Rescue's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home German Shepherds from across the State of Texas and to educate the public about the versatility and ability of the German Shepherd Dog from Family Pet to Working Dog.


We are not a shelter. We have no central location. All of our dogs live in homes with volunteers who donate their time and energy to save these dogs. Austin German Shepherd Dog Rescue is a 501-1(c) non-profit organization run strictly by volunteers.



Donations Needed!
All donations go directly for the care and re-homing of the dogs we rescue.

Dogs in our program receive immediate benefit from the generous contributions of our donors. We want the community and our donors to understand how these funds are used and to feel comfortable knowing that their donations are going directly to a needy Shepherd.


Here's how your donation can help:

    This Amount... Will pay for...

  • $10 1 month supply of flea protection

  • $15 1 day of boarding

  • $50 A veterinary exam and vaccinations

  • $75 A spay or neuter

  • $135 All of the above, and 1 month's heartworm preventative

  • $250 Heartworm treatment (removal) for one dog


The health of many of the dogs that come in to our program has been neglected.
Your generous donation... no matter how small... will help us ensure that one of our dogs gets the medical attention they need and deserve. To donate see http://austingermanshepherdrescue.org/Donations/donate_funds.htm.


Volunteer to Help!

The need for caring volunteers is great! There is a myriad of things needed to keep AGSDR operating and allow us to take in, foster, treat, board, and adopt out the Shepherds that are in our care, and who are yet to come. We need people to transport dogs and/or supplies, assist at Meet & Greets, organize events, perform administrative functions and many other critical tasks. If you would like to volunteer, please send an e-mail to jazz@austingermanshepherdrescue.org.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our available dogs are on our website at .austingermanshepherdrescue.org/available.htm Check the website for upcoming events and a chance to meet some of these wonderful dogs!
